Beautifully drawn Victorian picture (from a painting by Basil Verestchagin) showing a Kirghiz falconer in his yurt, his falcon with its wings outspread  perched on his upstretched hand. He wears a conical brimmed hat and richly patterned shirt, sash and baggy trousers; a gun is slung over his shoulder and a dagger hangs at his waist.
